UPS Customers:
Hospitals Delays in processing shipments & inventory discrepancies Late shipments Increasing complaints Hospitals are beginning to boycott CPDN & starting to order directly from suppliers/manufacturers
Last month: 2,000 lines back ordered & 1,000 orders were not shipped on time to customers Strained relationships and lack of trust concerns regarding collusive trade partners Lack of integration entities using different performance measures Only UPS being measured CPDN & UPS have identified need for revamp of performance metrics Introduction CPDN are focusing their efforts on 2 aspects: Establish a new set of key performance indicators Develop integration & collaboration Performance Measurement Performance measurement leads to high performing firms & improves overall operational function (Fawcett & Cooper, 1998) Monitor transport, warehousing, inventory and order processing Better overview and control Collected data and clear indicators Quality and value-added information Clearly defining, developing and implementing planning processes will greatly contribute to an organisations financial and operational success (Bracker et al., 1988) Developing Integration & Collaboration Supply chain is not only defined in terms of physical movement of goods but also in terms of information movement (Ayers, 2006) Firms can expect higher levels of operational and financial performance from formalised programmes to measure results (Carr & Pearson, 1999) Trust is the "cornerstone of strategic partnership" (Spekman, 1988) Lack of trust affects productivity & efficiency (Kwon & Suh, 2004) Logistics Strategy Agile Strategy High level of customer service by responding quickly to changing conditions For supply chains where it is important to maintain customer service and be responsive to rapid changes (Waters, 2009) Customer satisfaction
Flexible operations
Open organisation that allows customers easy access
Cooperate with supply chain partners enough to respond quickly to changing conditions (Information Strategy) Inventory Discrepancies Inventory Discrepancies Focus on 3 decision areas: Inventories Need to determine control policies, appropriate stock levels and prevent future discrepancies Order processing Inventory auditing (Ryan, 2013) Need to operate a processing system design to improve processing orders and shipping backorders Counting and keeping track of items and merchandise Purchasing Need to develop supplier buyer relationship Items audited more frequently present lower levels of inaccuracy Communication Order Processing Performance levels will improve if both managers and employees have access to new important information (Korhonen and Pirtillä, 2003) Time Reduction Strategy Purchasing Relationship and Trust Aimed at guaranteeing fast delivery of product Eliminating activities that add no value and speeding up core activities Accountability Simplification
Resource planning (Waters, 2009) Cooperation among trading partners reduces uncertainty and increases levels of trust KPIs On-time deliveries
Inventory accuracy
Length of promised order cycle times for in-stock products Minimise errors and misunderstandings and therefore establish a relationship based on trust and commitment (Kwon and Suh, 2004) KPIs Total customer satisfaction
Receiving turn-around time
On-time deliveries Partner scorecards: rate the strategic and operational fit Partner scorecards are key in evaluating a partner’s ability to engage in a business relationship (Fawcett and Cooper, 1998) Conclusion Greater information availability and accurate, detailed, relevant and timely information (Fawcett and Cooper, 1998) KPI's CPDN need to implement new strategies on
Inventory levels
Order processing systems
Buyer-Supplier relationship Adopt a logistics strategy and establish clear lower logistics decisions Manufacturers performance in meeting promised delivery dates
Advanced notice on shipping delays
Suppliers ability to accommodate production schedule changes Then they use new key performance indicators to maintain a high performing supply chain Establish new set of performance indicators (Waters, 2009) (Waters, 2009) (Waters, 2009)
